Krementz offers a comprehensive review of the city from a child's perspective. This time, readers follow engaging six-year-old Matt Wilson as he admires the city's trademark cherry blossoms, shakes hands with a guard at the Arlington Cemetery, and examines the portrait of George Washington at the National Gallery of Art. Tucked amongst the large colored photographs are many anecdotes and tidbits of information sure to appeal to kids. For example, Matt tells readers that George Washington is not smiling in his picture because his wooden teeth didn't fit very well.
